3:12 pm
news from planet blagojevich, rod blagojevich in court to answer a batch of new charges. the feds say he tried to trade president obama's senate seat for money or favors. the indictment keeps the accusations and adds
3:13 pm
racketeering, distortion and bribery. building told the judge i enter a plea of innocence. you can't enter that. in each case you're wondering he told the judge he's not taking any medication. after the hearing, blago called for prosecutors to release recordings at the center of the case. >> i challenge the government, if you're on the side of truth and justice as you say and if this was a crime spree, don't hide behind tech caltys, play all the tames. >> blah blah blah, building go. the tapes got him in trouble. one has him talking about the senate seat saying i got this thing and it's fenning golden. >> drew is sitting high and dry in atlanta. i want to get this out there. arthur, he wants to play these tapes, play all the tapes,
3:14 pm
because then he knows everything that the feds have on him. the feds were recording him, he wasn't recording himself? you know their evidence, you can fight against it i'm guessing. >> it's a brilliant way to get early discovery and that's where he's headed. they don't have to turn over discovery until the eve of trial. but the tapes in my opinion are going to crush him. he's been on every media outlet that will give him an audience, spewing and spewing and spewing and what the prosecutors will do is take all that and splice and cut and take it all and use that to hurt his defense more and more. and there's nothing -- >> shepard: or to show what he did. >> fine. there's nothing worse as a criminal defense attorney to hear your words or client words uttered over and over to establish your own guilt.
3:15 pm
>> shepard: defense attorney drew findlay? >> he's entitled to the tapes, he's says don't pick and choose. >> shepard: water is down. give me a sea of stuff but the part that is germane to the case will be watered down? >> what you're going to see is they probably accomplished about 1/10 of 1% of the tapes and he's counting on 99.9% of the rest of the tapes are exculpatory or innocuous and he says put it in context and it's much ado about nothing. what is important today -- hold on a second -- they reindicted the case to most of away from the honest services violations which the supreme court is
3:16 pm
probably about to toss down the drain making it more difficult. >> if the rest of the tapes are innocuous, that's one thing. i think east going to show he had a lots of conversations about nothing. even if there's one tenth of 10% that shows he's culpaable that's enough. >> i disagree. then you say to the jury this other the 99% is reasonable doubt. he could be puffing and bsing on the tape. it may come out as a bunch of bull. >> hey, hey, everybody's allowed to make comments. if you put it in context, then it may come out to be a. >> you have to admit all the things he's saying, you know
3:17 pm
the -- i know you've been involved in cases and i have where you sit as a defense attorney and hear the prosecutor playing your own client's words on abc and fox and this and that and the other thing and fox's news channel and website and you cringe because there's nothing you can do. those are his words he's saying and implicating himself. >> you want to throw up. >> who gets the last word? >> it becomes difficult if he chooses to testify at trial. it's today are for cross-examination. hopefully they've carefully chosen their words. the government does it every twist and turn. they were caught off guard and gave the no comment today. >> drew findlay, arthur, you got to the best. the feds pointing to arson as the cause of a string of texas church fires. serious stuff. the bureau of alcohol tobacco and firearms says at least eight
3:18 pm

3:22 pm
some areas telling snowplow operatatories chill for a bit and major interstates are closed? >> yes and there is where we've been monitoring the roads. we have a lot of feeds, including 395 around d.c. and we look at the dog, because he's cute and enjoying the snow. far are north, pennsylvania governor closed portions of several interstates including i-83 and i-81 and turning away vehicles at the border because of the conditions. elsewhere, treacherous driving and some counties, montgomery andal drink i can't virginia told the plow operatorrers to pull over of the mayor the d.c. said it will be a long hall for snowplow and salt truck drivers. >> we were telling our drivers, during the whiteout, take it easy because we don't want serious injuries to them or anybody else but they're out on
3:23 pm
12-hour shifts for the foreseeable future. >> in baltimore, the government banned most cars and trucks. mayor tweeted, quote, only emergency vehicles are permitted on city roadways, everybody else has to stay off. >> planes and trains. in the tri-state it's iffy. >> as the storm intensified, more closures have come in. a partial list, reaganen national airport closed, dulles airport low he ised. baltimore washington international, bwi, pretty much every canceled there. philadelphia international closed to all commercial flights and amtrak running limited service with most but not all trains going north or south of d.c. canceled. >> that's philly and new york, same in -- philly and washington, newark is not taking inning. just stay home and enjoy
3:24 pm
yourself. >> many churches in east texas are hiring security, others have volunteers stand guard and arp son investigators search for a person or persons that burned down places of worship t started last month with fires in athens, next in tyler, texas, lindadale and will's points. some within hours of the last. so far no reports of anybody hurt and no arrests. neil franklin is the chief. i guess our working together. any ideas about who or why? >> it is a group evident. we've got multiple agencies involved and we're not sure at this point who and why. we're looking at several leads. we've got in fact hundreds of leads we're chasing town and we're -- down, hoping to come to a conclusion. >> no who or why, what about
3:25 pm
how? similar techniques? >> some of our fires are similar. we can't really get into details because of the investigation that's continuing but some are similar so we know that a few of them appear to be connected. we've had out of the eleven fires we've had, eight of those fires have been deemed arson and then the last two we just had in northern smith county were suspicious in nature. >> shepard: for so many hundreds of millions of people there's not a place, outside your own house, not a more important place than church. your families get together, you're there with friend. i wonder how people are taking it? >> it's been devastating to the community. i say devastating but they've come together. we have heard quotes from church members that we're the church, our building is not. i think our community has grown close. they're all working out there to
3:26 pm
keep their buildings safe and they're taking the church membership, the ones that can't afford 24-hour security are taking turns. they're taking time out, guarding their church. we told them even though it's texas, we told them to arm themselves with cell phones and call 911 in case they see something suspicious. >> shepard: i read that, arm yourselves with cell phones. one of the biggest fears is somebody trying to protect a place might get in the way of somebody who doesn't worry about somebody getting hurt and that would be all of. >> absolutely. our concern is safety. that's another reason we're looking at prosecuting someone as quickly as possible and getting these people away. it's a matter of time if we keefe keep having fires, someone's going to get hurt, firefighter or someone in a meeting and the arsonist doesn't know it.
3:27 pm
that's the concern is the safety. >> chief neil franklin at the tyler fire department. gallon good luck to you. >> in pakistan they confirm the death of a taliban leader. we have the details. first in germantown, maryland. very dark there apparently. there it is. wow, that's a drift. alternate side park rules are suspended. baltimore broke the record for the snowiest winter. historic spacecrafts exposed to the temperatures. a wall collapsed in the smithsonian stubbornly facility. we're live with all of the snow updates. 2 1/2 minutes. male announcer ] e had a heart attack caused by a completely blocked artery,
3:28 pm
another heart attack could be lurking, waiting to strike. a heart attack caused by a clot, one that could be fatal. but plavix helps save lives. plavix, taken with other heart medicines, goes beyond what other heart medicines do alone, to provide greater protection against heart attack or stroke and even death by helping to keep blood platelets from sticking together and forming clots. ask your doctor about plavix, protection that helps save lives. [ female announcer ] people with stomach ulcers or other conditions that cause bleeding should not use plavix. taking plavix alone or with some other medicines, including aspirin, may increase bleeding risk, so tell your doctor when planning surgery. certain genetic factors and some medicines, such as prilosec, may affect how plavix works. tell your doctor all the medicines you take, including aspirin, especially if you've had a stroke. if fever, unexplained weakness or confusion develops, tell your doctor promptly. these may be signs of ttp, a rare but potentially life-threatening condition, reported sometimes less than 2 weeks after starting plavix.
3:29 pm
other rare but serious side effects may occur.
3:30 pm
is. >> shepard: snomageddon and in maryland a new snow record. almost 5 1/2 feet of snow. the before i had -- blizzard warning is in effect. >> this is what is it like to be in germmantown, maryland. 28, 30 inches of snow on the ground and the wind is blowing like crazy. you can't see where you're going. we took a walk to an area where they have a bunch of stores and
3:31 pm
found people doing hard work. take a look. >> about 20 degrees, 35 miles an hour winds, in some cases whiteout conditions, a lot of bad jobs on a day like today. not a day at the beach being a reporter but my hat is off to these guys. we're on top of a home depot roof in germantown, maryland. they're shoveling the snow off. in a building like this there's concern about weight on a flat roof so they have 10 or 12 guys taking off the heavy snow, shoving it into the parking lot below. you have to stay up with it because if you don't and keep your walk clean and your car dug outs, this is what you end up with at the end of about 35 inches of snow. these people are on their own. >> that's going to have to melt. if you scrape off that thing you'll scrape the paint and it
3:32 pm
will be a mess. >> yes. it's just unbelievable out here. i can't describe it. everywhere, piles and piles and piles of snow. >> at least you have a tent and kerosene heater so you and the crew should be fine. good luck, brian. >> see you later. >> overseas, two stories out of pakistan. first the death of a top taliban leader. pakistani officials report to us he died from wounds suffered in the u.s. missile strike last month. there have been rumors he was dead but this is the first something like a confirmation. despite that death, another reminder of the militant threat in pakistan a bomber blew himself up in a town entrepreneur the border of afghanistan, at least ten people killed. >> how bad is the east coast snowstorm? so bad, city leaders in

3:37 pm
accessible to any cars. some have not been cleared or moved. i don't know if you could. for the humvee, no problem. we're rolling down in this car built pretty rough and tough and has no problem in deep snow. fat tires, i wanted suspension -- independent suspension and two national guard, one from afghanistan and another just joined and may be headed over there. the humvee called out at the request of the city a dozen of them put on emergency calls to clear access and get police officers where they need to go because it's hard to get around in this snowy city. >> always at the ready. a cool shot live as they moval in the human humvee. big changes at american idol. simon's last season and last night, ellen's big debut.

>> shepard: ellen degeneres making her debut on american idol, taking the place of paula abdul despite her lack of experience in the music descry but we addressed the critics. >> i don't know how you feel but when people say what do you know about music, i know what it's like to stand on stage and try to please a room full of people. that is a hard thing to do. >> she knows the dance. despite that ellen didn't skimp on the criticism. >> i'm tired as it is, that almost put me right out. >> it was crazy i think. in a bad way crazy. >> i'm sorry. >> where are you from? >> florida. >> put some shoes on here. it's filthy here. hollywood is a disgusting town. >> shepard: she had no problem playing with the contestants' nerves. >> danny, step forward. tory step forward.
3:43 pm
now maddie step back. danny step to your left a little bit. [ laughter ] claire, step forward and then step back real quick. you're all going through. >> tv guide says i think people were expecting her to be a replacement for paula and she was really a replacement for simon. this is his last season but paula was not forgotten. >> straight up now tell me ♪ ♪ dow really want to love to be forever ♪ ♪ am i caught in a hit-and-run? >> yes, that contestant performing paula's hit. log on to foxnews.com/shep. a lot of you weighed in and 70% of your have your hate on. come on, get in there and fix that. sharon waxman, editor and chief
3:44 pm
of the rap.com that breaks news all the time in hollywood. filthy place. what did you think of her last night? >> i thought she was good. i really -- yeah, i did. she had very ditsy shoes to fill but she said i'm not going to fill the paula slot, i'm doing the ellen thing and she had strong opinions. she acted i thought like she'd been there a year. she was ordering people around and making lists and telling people thumb he is up or down. she wasn't timid at all which was cool. >> i just can't see ellen as timid in much of any sort of environment. she always seems confident and seems to -- she seemed to put people at ease, really. >> i think that she -- she's a familiar presence to people. but you don't know how she's going to act in that context. she doesn't have the credibility
3:45 pm
of someone from the musical world but she can acknowledge that and she said basically i'm going to have strong opinions here and i'm going to tell you what i think. but she did it in a funny way. i don't know why your polls came out lop sided. >> i don't know. paula abdul, you know, she had her moments. and there were times when -- let me be delicate. there were times when the critics thought she might have been in the sauce or something or other, you know? >> she might have been in her own zone, parallel universe and that was the fun. the question is, is ellen going to create a kind of rapport with the other judges that is going to be it's own narrative? because that was a lot of the fun paula, simon, paula-randy,
3:46 pm
paula kara, did they get along? so ellen, she's not going to want to be and island. she want to have relationships to play off the other judges but it's awkward since simon's leaving. >> there's a method to the madness. when you put together a show you try to create different narratives. so if you don't love the whole singing part, you might love the judge part. you don't love that, you might love. this it's a matter to bring as many people under the tent without pushing anyone away. if you see ellen as the kind of person who makes somebody who otherwise have watched not watched? >> yes. >> really? >> i think the more potent question for them is, can she replace simon. you said at the top. simon is the reason people watch the show i believe more than anything. he's entertaining, funny, he's a villain and he speaks the truth.
3:47 pm
he says what we all think at home and nobody else dares to say. he's there to do that. if she can fill that role, they have a chance of making the franchise interesting after he goes. the singing to me is great. but it's almost ins accidental. simon is the most interesting character on the show by far. that's the challenge. >> it is and it's a big one. sharon waxman of the wrap.com. great to see you. >> thank you. >> we're going to give you results of the poll. a couple thousands of you voted. i wanted to give are more time. foxnews.com/shep. do you think ellen will boost it is ratings. we've got sad news breaking now. charles wilson, the former u.s. congressman from texas, has been reported to have died by a hospital there. you may remember charlie wilson from charlie wilson's war if you're not up on the politics.
3:48 pm
charlie wilson -- this is the movie, it's based on his story in washington. he raised funds for the afghan huge had a dean when they were fighting the soviets and they ran tail, tail tucked out to pass there. and it was largely believed that charlie wilson's efforts to get funding were the ones who ran the soviets out. he represented the second district in east texas in the house 1973 to 1996. and he was the subject of that movie. he was known around washington as good time charlie, charlie wilson dead today at the age of 76. are you receiving a payout from a legal settlement or annuity over 10 or even 20 years? call imperial structured settlements. the experts at imperial can convert your long-term payout into a lump sum of cash today.

3:51 pm
new video and disturbing video from settlement,
3:52 pm
surveillance cameras showing a 15-year-old girl punching and kicking another teenager. they do it all the time but not normally on camera. it was in front of security guard. tim gaughan is tracking this. >> this is disturbing. we have seen this before, not usually in sight of security guard. 7:00 p.m. january 28, seattle's metro bus tunnel. it starts off with a group teens harassing 15-year-old girl. when the video starts we see a girl fight one-on-one. the video shows all this is taking place in front of flee security guards, well marked, bright yellow jackets and security on their backs. after the victim is punched, the attack is worse and the suspect kicks her face and storms on her head. the victim is all right but what is striking is the security people. the guards are not trained police officers on to transit. they're county road workers for olympic security service. according to the contract, the
3:53 pm
guards observe and report problems. not get involved. transit manager says the policy is out of date and it's under review. the girl will be okay and there have been arrests of the suspects and all this under review. according to the contract they're to observe, report and not get involved. still very shocking. >> tim gaughan, thanks a lot. >> one of the president's top money men is laying out the government's strategy to lay out the money lent during the height of the economic crisis. ben bernanke was expected to testify but the hearing was canceled because of the snow. bernanke says the fed will likely raise it is interest rate it pays banks. raise the rate but analysts say that could hurt folks looking for consumer loans because banks have incentive to sit on their money rather than lend. this is the cycle and we're gob to move forward.
3:54 pm
bernanke says the move is months away and claims it's best for the fed to recoup the money it loaned out. you may wonder why would the federal reserve do something to make it more difficult to get loans? at the same time, the obama administration wants banks to extend loans to small business to say they can hire more workers. it's a central component of the job creation plan. major garrett has more. how can each happen at the same time, as if i didn't know? >> i've talked to senior administration officials and of course the federal reserve is an independent agency, the white house and treasury department don't like to talk about the policy but the federal reserve and government are more interlinked since the financial crisis and they say one of the things they're impressed about is the federal reserve taking a move that -- this is important, many months down the road, they believe the federal reserve is signaling to larger currency
3:55 pm
markets and observers that the federal reserve has plan to drive down the money supply, meaning not print as much or lend out as much as it did when it intervened and they do not believe it's fundamentally going to limit the credit available to those who want it and are seeking it. a couple of things, they believe as the gross domestic product improves and people are confident, there will be more requests for lending and more credit in the market. one of the things going on is people aren't requesting credited because they don't believe the economy justifies hiring more people. that is true for big spawned businesses. they do not believe the feds will interview with what they're trying to accomplish. >> all right, major garrett, live at the white house, it stopped snowing? >> yes but the wind is kicking up. >> we can hope the snow comes back. new yorkers know it's not
